|Cosmological Views -- Groks Science Show 2006-09-13 - Charles Lee and Frank Ling|
Cosmological theories address how the universe was created, and what awaits for the future. What do recent advances tell us about the universe? On this program, Prof. Joel Primack discussed the view from the center of the universe.
Keywords: science; astronomy; cosmology
|Cosmological History -- Groks Science Show 2005-10-19 - Charles Lee and Frank Ling|
Cosmological views of the universe have evolved from ideas as simple as a flat earth to current notions that accede the possibilty of multiple universes. On this program, Prof. David Park discussed the history of cosmology.
Keywords: Science; cosmology; multiverse
|Universe Ticket -- Groks Science Show 2013-05-22 - Charles Lee and Frank Ling|
The universe is a very large place and it often helps to have a guide. On this episode, Megan Watzke discussed a guide to the cosmos.
Keywords: science; cosmology; astronomy; groks
|Large Scale Universe -- Groks Science Show 2006-10-18 - Charles Lee and Frank Ling|
How did the universe begin? How will it end? And, what do we do in the mean time? On this program, Prof. P. James Peebles from Princeton University discussed cosmology and dark matter.
Keywords: science; physics; cosmology; dark matter
|Wonderous Universe -- Groks Science Show 2011-07-27 - Charles Lee and Frank Ling|
The universe is a large and mysterious place. How did it begin? How will it end? And, what are the steps along the way? On this program, Prof. Brian Cox discussed the wonders of the universe.
Keywords: science; universe; cosmology; astronomy; groks
|Little Strings -- Groks Science Show 2010-06-02 - Charles Lee and Frank Ling|
String theory may explain the fundamental properties of the universe. But, who can explain string theory? On this program, Steven Gubser discussed the little book of strings.
Keywords: science; physics; string theory; cosmology; groks
|Infinity Puzzle -- Groks Science Show 2011-12-14 - Charles Lee and Frank Ling|
Understanding the fundamental forces of nature is one of the hallmarks of modern physics. However, mathematically describing these forces often results in the emergence of infinities. On this program, Prof. Frank Close discussed the infinity puzzle.
Keywords: science; cosmology; particle physics; physics; groks
|Heaveny Physics -- Groks Science Show 2011-10-12 - Charles Lee and Frank Ling|
Modern physics may seem remote from our daily lives, yet the discoveries in the field have the potential to change how we view the world. On this program, Lisa Randall discussed how discoveries in modern physics shape the world around us.

|The Cosmos Within Us -- Groks Science Show 2013-03-06 - Joanna Rowell|
Where did the atoms in our bodies come from? How did Jupiter shape the evolution of life on Earth? Why is our moon so weird? And, most importantly, how do you make an apple pie from scratch? On this episode, evolutionary biologist and paleontologist Neil Shubin joins us to discuss his exciting new book, "The Universe Within: Discovering the Common History of Rocks, Planets, and People."

|The Cosmic Cocktail -- Groks Science Show 2014-06-18 - Samantha Thomas|
Hundreds of years ago, Galileo told us that the earth is not the center of the universe. Now, physicists are telling us that the normal matter you and I are made of isn’t even the majority of the matter that exists. Today Dr. Katherine Freese, a theoretical astrophysicist at the University of Michigan and author of the Cosmic Cocktail, joins us to talk about the composition of the cosmos and the mysterious nature of dark matter and dark energy
